Things like this truly make me think I’m living in the wrong time. I LOVE being active and doing different modes of functional training! I couldn’t agree more with this first picture. You shouldn’t care what you weigh. I don’t! You MUST care about your body fat percentage, how you perform, and aging atypically.


We sit way too much, and while we sit, we stare at TV’s, computer screens, phones, iPads, etc. There is NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING functional about sitting! What’s funny is people do their lifting sitting down too-STOP THAT SHIT! Stand up! It challenges your stability more, and it’s far better for you!


This is why I love renaissance style training. It’s why I promote that my training execution for clients is with the goal of a warrior physique and performance! It’s more functional. Want to activate all your muscles better? Want to stop feeling achy and tight? Then you need to train ALL of the 6 foundational movement patterns: squat, lunge, hinge, push, pull, carry! •

Now, let’s talk about the steroid picture. You can not argue with the point being made here. Did the Greeks, Vikings, Romans, and Celtic warriors use PED’s? NOPE! Wanting to pursue PED’s is pure laziness! True athletes WORK for their performance. They got their strength, endurance, and physique naturally, as can you. •

A simple meditation that you can do just about anywhere: Find a comfortable seat. Set a timer for five minutes. Insight Timer + Calm are two apps that have beautiful ending sounds to choose from--bells, chimes, + others. Close your eyes or soften your gaze. Take three deep, conscious, hearable breaths, in through your nose + out through your mouth. Draw your attention to the breath, following each inhale + each exhale. If a thought arises, gently + self compassionately acknowledge it, maybe saying to yourself "thinking," then return to your observation of the breath. Repeat this process until the timer goes off. You did it 💚Meditation can be absolutely life-changing as a daily or even several-times-weekly practice. Among other medically-proven benefits, it activates the parasympathetic nervous system, augments mindfulness + concentration, helps cultivate equanimity where reactivity once ruled, + creates transformation on all levels of being, from brain connections between synapses to how we interact with our worlds in the macro. Owner @elleinthepines knows the power of meditation firsthand, + has been trained in teaching meditation as a part of @traceholistic's E•volve Synergy Coaching. Meditation can be a powerful piece of your personal evolution. Want to learn more about meditation, +/or find your well synergistically with @elleinthepines as your free or by-donation holistic wellness coach? DM or tap the link in our bio to get started. 🌕

We NEED more health practitioners (health coaches, nutritionists, women's health experts, NDs, MDs, OBGYNs, pediatricians, etc. talking about environmental chemical exposures! ⠀

This article in @vice is talking about a recent study that found the vast majority of OB/GYNs aren’t talking to expectant moms about environmental toxins, despite the recommendations to do so.⠀

85% of OBGYN's screened said they’re not comfortable screening for environmental factors. Only 10% said they know how to instruct their patients on the best way to reduce their chemical exposure. ⠀

Not all docs have the time during office visits to guide their patients on lifestyle changes to reduce exposures... THIS is where the allied health professional comes in! ⠀

“I first met Andrea as a presenter in a panel discussion on functional medicine. She was just a bright, shining star at that event which led me to have a lunch meeting with her. I had never thought about having a health coach and, of course, I thought I knew everything about nutrition. Despite that, I opted to go ahead with working with Andrea for three months. Wow, was I surprised!⠀
.⠀
She helped me to take healthy behaviors and make them unconscious choices. Her work is about behavior—behavior that will advance your desired health goals. And she is really good at it. It’s not an instant fix or transformation but one that becomes built in for the long term. If you are looking for that kind of change, she’s the one and she’ll make you feel great every time you talk with her.”⠀
.⠀
Yes! I couldn’t say it better myself. When it comes to health, I truly believe in finding the long-term solution. It might be harder or take more work to get there, but when healthy behavior becomes your default—that’s when it truly lasts. That’s when you feel your best, inside and out. So happy to have connected with this client—and that she decided to make the leap and trust me with her health goals! 😘

Food is Medicine: Do you know the benefits of celery juice? 💚
.
.
Celery juice has amazing health benefits! I recommend juicing celery through a cold press juicer and drinking 8-16 ounces daily. .
.
Benefits:
• Relaxes blood vessels to control blood pressure
• Great source of fiber (when eating the entire plant) and low in calories to lower cholesterol
• Maintains slightly basic pH in the blood stream
• Contains Coumarins which enhance activity of white blood cells and increase lymphatic drainage to detox the body
• Has antioxidants to help fight free radicals to prevent cancer * Contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, Magnesium
• Great source of Potassium and Sodium to replenish electrolytes after activity •Also is anti-inflammatory, a compound called 3-n-butylphthaline which not only helps lower blood pressure but is a pain reliever for arthritis, gout, and fibromyalgia .

Weight loss fun fact #8: Weight loss and GLUTEN!

Gluten does not cause weight gain...period! There is absolutely no scientific evidence of this, regardless of what you may be hearing.
Here’s the scoop: 🔅 Certain people must avoid gluten; those with Celiac Disease, auto-immune conditions, gluten sensitivity, etc. 🔅 Others choose to avoid gluten for other personal reasons 🔅 There is no harm by avoiding gluten, as long as you remember to include foods rich in dietary fiber, which means choosing fresh fruits & veggies as well as the appropriate fiber rich grains 🔅 The idea that those who eat GF are “healthier” stems from the principles by which these people are eating. For example, those who eat GF typically are more diligent label readers and typically find themselves gravitating to a more “whole” or “plant-based” diet in order to avoid gluten. While both of these things are considered good rules to live by, they have nothing to do with the gluten itself. 🔅 Not all GF foods are healthy, and some may pack on the pounds just as easy as any other type of food that’s high in sugar, low in dietary fiber and high in calories. These are the GF foods that are pre-package, ready-to-eat style foods that aren’t the best choices. ➡️ CASE IN POINT: Choose wisely to determine what is right for you!

✨The health benefits of probiotics center around what is known as the amazing microbiome. 😉
.
.
.
The microbiome is composed of a huge number of microflora that work together to regulate health. The two most focused in the supplement industry are from two genus, Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus. If you look at a supplement label closely, you’ll see manufacturers throwing all sorts of strains of Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium together into the same bottle. I will be breaking down different strains in future posts, but today will just go over what they are and do..
.
.
.
Bifidobacterium is a genus of the bacteria kingdom that reside in the GI (gastrointestinal) tract, vaginal systems and the mouth. They are Gram-positive, use glucose as fuel and are usually branched-shaped. What separates this genus from the other bacteria is a particular pathway that allows it to ferment carbohydrates. This is beneficial for us because plant and milk carbohydrates are not digestible by humans. Fermentation turns these carbs into short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which is the main energy source for our intestinal cells. But aside from providing our bodies with much-needed SCFAs, Bifidocacterium also works to protect us from infections..
.
.
.
Like Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus also ferments carbohydrates into SCFAs and also found in the gut and vaginal systems. Lactobacillus, also Gram-positive bacteria are the only bacteria to contain PanK-II enzymes, which is the first enzyme in the Coenzyme A (CoA) pathway that participates in many biochemical reactions in protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. It has a high tolerance for low pH conditions allowing them to travel through GI tract and survive the abrupt pH changes in the intestinal system.
.
.
.
A two-part study showed that the risk of probiotic-associated bacteremia ( a condition where the bacteria go to places they shouldn’t, like the blood) was only 0.2%, while a study for seven years showed no bacteremia when patients were given a probiotic combination. This is the first point that counsels in favor of combining a few strains of probiotics, combinations prevent one strain from becoming dominant and taking over.✨

Thursday morning work + @bulletproof date at the kitchen table while the girls play. I’m feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for the important job God has given us to do- helping people get well by looking to the root cause of their health concerns. The fact that we are on this mission together is a gift. Who would have known when we were married 12 years ago that I would join my hubs in practice as a naturopath?! ❤️

Day 1/14 of my #sugardetox starting off strong with oatmeal (it's under there, I promise 😉) for my follicular phase. .

Processed sugar is one of the easiest things to let slip into your life when you opt for convenience - it's in almost every packaged food! While I do focus on eating a natural, whole foods diet... I also let myself enjoy life and treat myself with sugar. .

But then it slowly creeps it's way into every meal... because it is highly addictive and if it's natural, unrefined sugar it's okay, right? Sadly no - sugar is sugar is sugar - and it is highly inflammatory in the body💥 .

The purpose of this detox is to retrain my taste buds and get out of the habit of craving sugar while simultaneously supporting my body's hormonal processes that sugar eagerly disrupts. .

Have you ever tried cutting out sugar? What was it like? Let me know! 👇

Start your day right! Ditch tap water (especially if you in Arizona). It is just undrinkable! Do not buy bottled water - unless you want some BPAs with it. Filter your tap water! Cheaper and better for the ecology.

FOOD SHAMING...
.
.
Is not acceptable, EVER. .
.
It's OK to be passionate about your food choices - be it paleo, keto, vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, pescitarian, your average American omnivore...
.
.
But it's NOT ok to try to make someone feel badly that what's on their plate is morally wrong or makes them a bad person. Unless you're a cannibal...I would probably draw the line there. 😜
.
.
If someone eats meat and YOU think that's morally or ethically wrong, keep your thoughts to yourself. How do you know that person didn't source their meal from a humane farm where every person involved in the process is grateful and loves the animals too? There is such a thing as sustainbly sourced, humane, and ethically handled animals in farming. #stopmeatshaming .
.
(P.S. Regenerative farming requires animals and helps restore grasslands and soil to sequester carbon, so eating grassfed meat can be environmentally responsible as well...).
.
.
The truth is, anyone guilting anyone about their food choices is just plain f*$%ing RUDE. Vegans guilting omnivores, omnivores guilting vegans, that helps NO ONE. #stopveganshaming .
.
This act can only perpetuate someone's deep rooted screwed up relationship with food and creates more division. Everyone is doing the best they can with the information and resources they have. .
.
So let's just be kind, reserve judgement at the table, educate and accept other opinions and stop bullying each other about our food choices. .

Hello, good morning ☀️! Grabbing my natural beauty products + some essentials and heading to Austin, TX 🌵this morning.
What’s one beauty product you can’t live without?
I must say the @cocokindskincare MACABEET, its made with 4 ingredients and you can add a little color to your lips and cheeks.
I feel as if beauty products should be made with little ingredients as possible and with things that are in our kitchen pantry.
That’s why I love @hollyskeepingitreal DEODORANT, a must if you haven’t tried it yet. I even carry one in my purse for those hot TX days.
#
@helloproducts toothpaste + mouthwash are a favorite here at home so of course we like taking them along on all our trips + adventures.
My @naturalcycles is a MUST cause it’s my birth control and one I love so much cause 🙅🏻‍♀️no birth control pill allowed in my body{ I know this isn’t the case for everyone so consult with your OBGYN or Functional Medicine Gynecologists for other natural options}. As a mom traveling with my bears I always get extra anxious + nervous so I’m thankful I have @younglivingeo stress away.
If I need to freshen up I use @swbasics rose water spray and also added to my jojoba oil as part of my moisturizer treatment.
I’m pretty picky when it comes to skin, so I’m glad I found a perfume that is clean without any harmful chemicals like @cleanreserve. You can find them @sephora near you.
#
This is it, this is pretty much all I use. Ok, maybe I left out my tea tree oil which I think 🤔 I should pack just incase a pimple arises.
What you see in this picture, from my black African soap to wash my face with to the mineral mascara I use cause that’s about the only makeup I use, I actually don’t like wearing makeup, it’s never been a thing but love to see makeup on people. @honest just revamped their makeup line and I’ve been eyeing it but no sense in spending the money if I don’t wear it, right? I know some of you wanted to see my skin care stuff so there you have it.
I am beyond excited to see my sisters and new fur baby dog Dusty, I’ll meet you all back here in a bit for breakfast.

I was in yoga class the other day and the teacher cued Bird of Paradise.
.
Even though this funky balance posture has been in my practice for years, I didn’t do it. I didn’t even try.
.
I experienced wicked satisfaction and excitement when I first stuck the balance years ago, but now it just makes me hips feel sticky and my shoulders feel wonky. Can I do it? Sure. Is it worth it? Nah.
.
Just because I *can* do something doesn’t mean that I *should* do it or that it’s right for me.
.
This goes for food, too.
.
Can I subsist on under 1800 calories a day? Yep. Can I fast for extended periods of time? Sho can. Can I drop my carbs super low? Easily.
.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT I SHOULD?
AWNAW HELL NAH.
.
When you’ve practiced yoga for awhile, you start to feel confident enough in your practice and your body to not let your ego trip you up (well, most of the time anyway). You start to “do you” and worry less about the periphery. Yogis reading this probably know that feeling. It’s glorious.
.
YOU CAN DO THIS WITH FOOD, TOO.
.
This is what I want to show you in my upcoming Carb Compatibility Project. We’re talking carbs, yes. But we’re also talking so👏🏼much👏🏼more👏🏼. .

It's been a little over 5 years since I launched my nutritional therapy practice, and a little over two years since I launched my second website, BuildNurtureRestore, as the main website for my nutritional therapy practice.
I am to this day beyond grateful to the talented Celena Peet for the design of the website and logo, and the full-service help along the way!
Sometimes we take a logo, or a website name, for granted. However, there is deep personal, professional and symbolic meaning behind both of them, and I would love to share a bit of this meaning with you in this post.
The website name is based onI felt like I needed a website that fully represented my functional nutrition practice as it is today. Focusing on the three areas of concentration of my nutritional therapy practice – fertility and pregnancy, families with growing children, and people of all ages with complex health issues – thus Build, Nurture, Restore.
The logo, a stylization of the mariposa lily, is a three-petaled flower that represents these three focus areas of my practice. Beyond conveniently having three petals that correspond to each of the three realms, the mariposa lily symbolizes the mother-child relationship. Additionally, the mariposa (butterfly) is a powerful symbol of transformation and growth. What could be more transformative than the small steps that lead to the radical change that is healing?
Now, I’ve always been a symbols person. My dad was a poet, and I was a literature major in college. So indulge me a little here as I elaborate a little on the symbolism.
First of all, the mariposa lily symbolizes much more than the mother-child relationship. Of course, it represents the nurturing that both mothers and fathers give their children. By extension, it also symbolizes the nurturing aspect of my work with my clients. Most importantly, however, it represents the self-nurturing that goes along with healing. This means eating real food, getting sunshine and fresh air, being active in nature, and of course resting.

When the body experiences high oxidative stress and produces excess free radicals, it activates a protein called Nrf2 in response. This protein opens the door for production of a vast array of antioxidants and detoxification enzymes. Because the oxidative load of living in modern society is far greater than what our bodies have evolved to deal with, significant research has focused on how we can increase the activation of our Nrf2 cell defense pathways.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sulphoraphane, found in broccoli, has been found to be one of the most potent amplifiers of Nrf2. Broccoli is also rich in fiber, calcium, selenium and zinc, among other nutrients. Studies have shown that the switches that control the various health-promoting genes targeted by the Nrf2 pathway can remain in the 'on' position for as long as 24 hours after eating a stimulating phytonutrient such as sulphoraphane 🌱🧠🌿 #eatforhealth #prevention #yourhealthisyourwealth #antaralife

Are you torn between giving in to your child's cravings and demands for sweets and getting frustrated at the tantrums if you don't give in? Isn’t it stressful when some of our friends come home, and our child keeps asking us for a lollypop, chocolate or candy repeatedly, interrupting all conversation, until either we give in or say no, but only to find them throwing a massive tantrum right there?

I 💕 starting my day with Kris Carr’s meditations 🧘‍♀️.
.
For those who aren’t familiar with Kris, she’s an 11 year cancer thriver. She’s been living with an incurable form of cancer and thriving in spite of her diagnosis. Through clean eating, daily meditation and Yoga, practising gratitude, and showing love to animals, Kris is defying the odds and living a life of inspiration 💫.
.
If you want a seriously good dose of healing, Self-Care for Busy People is my go-to album for meditation that is focused on restoring the body’s natural systems. It’s a beautiful tool to support any conventional treatment, as the visualisation and affirmations are focused on mastering mindset, and creating an attitude of gratitude 🙏🏽.
.
Thanks for the reminder @crazysexykris ☀️.

This is reason why you should include turmeric into your diet everyday. Also add black pepper to your turmeric mix as it absorbs into the blood stream a lot easier. #plantbasedknowledge

So many of us have shoulder injuries, acute or chronic - so we thought it could be helpful to explain the muscle of the rotator cuff.
.
The shoulder complex comprises 30 muscles. These muscles both move the shoulder and stabilise it - 'movers' and 'shakers'. The rotator cuff muscles predominantly stabilise the glenohumeral joint, but also contribute significantly to movement.
The rotator cuff muscles are:
Supraspinatus
Infraspinatus
Teres Minor
Subscapularis
The tendons of these muscle coalesce to form the rotator cuff. The muscles are inseparable at this level, except for subscapularis which is separate and joined to the rest of the cuff via the rotator interval.
.
Supraspinatus is not only an initiator of abduction, but acts throughout the range of abduction of the shoulder. It has equal abduction power as deltoid. .
Infraspinatus & Teres Minor: These two muscles lies below the scapular spine and are external rotators of the shoulder. Infraspinatus primarily acts with the arm in neutral and Teres Minor is more active with external rotation in 90 degrees of abduction.
.
Subscapularis is the main internal rotator of the shoulder. It is the largest & strongest cuff muscle, providing 53% of total cuff strength. The upper 60% of the insertion is tendonous and the lower 40% muscle. It is a passive restraint in neutral, but not abduction.
.
Massage and acupuncture can help recover these muscles if you are experiencing pain. Book a session with us today and we can get to work. www.lifethymewellness.com

As someone who has studied nutrition, I often get asked what I eat. Last night’s dinner pretty much sums it up. My plate (not to be confused with the USDA 😭) usually contains a small amount of good quality protein (salmon), quality fats (DHA in the salmon, olive oil in the salad dressing and butter on the broccoli), and an array of vegetables (mixed salad and broccoli) to increase micronutrient density. Currently I’m doing a huge amount of exercise in Switzerland—well beyond my normal HK level, so my carbohydrate intake (in the form of sweet potatoes) is higher than the norm. Good food doesn’t need to be complicated—this dinner was easy to prepare, and much healthier than anything you’ll find at a restaurant. Want to get healthy quickly—just eat the bulk of your meals at home! #nutrition #nutritionist #functionalnutrition #myplate #nutrientdensity #nutrientdense #eatathome #prepareyourownfood #cooking #paleo #wahlsprotocol #salmon #dha #omega3 #dill #brocoli #butter #oliveoil #salad #mache #sweetpotatoes #lifestylemedicine #lifestylemedicineasia

We are made of cells. Cells are lined by an outer semi permeable membrane that allows nutrients to go in and out. ↔️
.
.
These cell membranes are mostly (among other things) made up of saturated fats (yes the so called 'evil' fat) and (it's more evil twin brother) 'cholesterol' 😈 #sarcasm
.
.
When we consume margarine, vegetable oils, hydrogenated fats our cell membranes get affected and we start getting various symptoms. 🤕
.
.
Remember our cells combine to form tissues and similar tissues form organs( like the heart, kidney, brain etc). You can probably imagine how important it is to keep our selves healthy down to the cellular level🔬
.
.
Pictured are the fats you want to avoid to the best of your ability. Dont be fooled by labels, Always read the ingredient list, you'll find them EVERYWHERE! 😱 #itsscary
.
.
Butter, ghee, coconut oil, avocado oil, tallow, extra virgin olive oil is where it's at! Usually the first thing I educate and encourage people to incorporate in their lives because it is SO important! 🙏

Did you notice a “lighter fare” section on the menu when you dined out? Many restaurants have reduced calorie options...but just because an entree is lower in calories, doesn’t mean that it is a nutritious choice.
Also, these calories were determined by one test kitchen. So it is very likely that these displayed calories are under-estimated, especially with so many different people preparing these foods. Nonetheless it’s a good place to start with looking for healthier restaurant choices.
My choice was the Wellness Salad, which had a mix of veggies and fruits, with a side of salmon @thecheesecakefactoryofficial

For those of you who believe the athletes that claim they’re natural...I hate to break it to ya, but MOST the pro-level athletes are using some sort of PED’s (performance enhancing drugs). They’ll deny it until the day they die, but this just shows you one small example of how incredibly abused PED’s are. These are the athletes banned from this year’s CrossFit games due to different PED usages.


I’ve had athletes email me because they’ve come off various drugs, and now they’re rapidly gaining weight, can’t perform the way they could, their inflammatory markers are sky high, their liver enzymes indicate strong blockage and delayed detoxification, and they have horrible gut problems and food sensitivities! They want to get rid of these issues but they won’t go away no matter what they do. They go to their primary care provider only to get prescribed more drugs to just, as always, manage symptoms. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE SYNTHETIC HORMONES (and the other categories of non-hormonal PED’s)! JUST. DON’T.


Are you struggling with post-PED use? Post-birth control syndrome? Hormone replacement therapy not giving you the results you want? There’s a reason you’re not feeling/looking/performing how you want when using any of these. The reason? THEY’RE. ALL. SYNTHETIC. HORMONES. Please DM me if you want help with getting off these and finally performing/feeling/looking how you want to without harming your health! I’ll get you on the right track!

Garlic harvesting at the garden! These guys are full of PREBIOTICS. What the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic? A prebiotic is fuel/food for the good microbes in your gut. Probiotics are good (pro) bacteria/microbes (biota) for the gut. So grab yourself some garlic, sauté those babies in butter, and you’re good to go #garlicbreathdontcare 🤘

Hotel life & eating at my desk. So glad @milamsmarkets in the Grove carries my favorite @glaserorganic salads and guacamole. The sprouted pumpkin seeds are from @thefreshmarket on Bayshore. I love living in Coconut Grove and most recently in the @mayfairhotel which makes life so simple. Moving to a condo very soon but greatly enjoying the simplicity of having very few belongings. Each time I move I am reminded of how much less is more, especially the older I get! I awoke early, walked my dog, meditated in the courtyard to the sound of water and jumped in the hot tub this morning before leaving to teach yoga on Key Biscayne. Ronnie and I are enjoying walking the neighborhood and running into friends. The new @booksandbooks is on my list for this week as is trying the glutenfree pizza @Harrys. Got some yummy Teavanna ginger tea blend @starbucks this evening before jumping on an Integrative Oncology call. Hotel life is working for now! #homefornow #functionalnutrition #healthyfoodie #lunch #veganmeal #organicfood #nutrientdense #functionalnutritionandlifestylepractitioner #walkingneighborhood #favoritesinthegrove #integrativenutritionhealthcoach #healthyhotelstay #simplicity #coconutgrovemiami #mayfairhotel #realfood #health #wellness

Snack time today: fresh veggies from the garden and artisan @treelinecheese ❤️ These Treeline artisan dairy-free cheeses are surprisingly delicious! The girls love them. My favorite part? They are also cultured, making them a probiotic food. If you are dairy-free, I highly recommend Treeline ☺️

Got heartburn? Heartburn is often dismissed as ‘normal’ instead of recognized as your body’s warning signals telling you that your digestive tract is in DISTRESS ⚠️. Here are my two favorite simple natural hacks to stop heartburn and start rebalancing your stomach.
1. Sweetish Bitters - you can order these on amazon. I will share the link soon to my favorite.
2. Daily Detox Tonic -
1tbsp organic, raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Juice from 1 lemon
1-2tbsp Honey
1/4 cup of Water
Start incorporating these into your daily rituals and watch your heartburn disappear

110 billion CFUs /shot. 11 shots in 1 bottle. $6.99.
.
Most probiotics- 8 or 15 bil CFUs. $30+.
.
You do the math 😳
.
Everyone is so quick to “supplement” when in reality we should always be looking at our diets first! 🙌
.
There are TRILLIONS of #bacteria in our microbiomes, so taking 8 or 15 billion CFUs is really like adding a drop of water in the ocean 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
There are of course times when I recommend probiotics (sometimes we need to raise one of the “good” bacteria vs another, etc) but for someone who just generally wants to support their GI, it’s all about diet diet diet! 🥦🥑🍆
.
In addition to eating #probiotic rich foods and drinks like this one, eating a wide variety of #fruits and #vegetables has been show to help DIVERSIFY the #microbiome, and you want as much diversity as possible- studies are showing that certain diseases and conditions have high amounts of one or two specific strains of bacteria in their microbiome, and these strains aren’t necessarily considered pathogenic, or “bad”.
.
Remember, our microbiome plays a role in our immune function, hormone and neurotransmitter production and more, so it’s not just about digestive health! .
Take care of your gut-diversify, diversify, diversify! 👏👏👏
